Serological Dipstick Assay Developed for Melioidosis

The Gram-negative environmental pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei, causes the severe disease melioidosis. It is highly endemic in southeast Asia and northern Australia, but recent studies suggest that it is also present in many other parts of the world where it is severely underreported. More...

Lipocalin 2 Proposed as Biomarker for Bacterial Meningitis

Central nervous system (CNS) infections cause significant mortality and morbidity worldwide. Common CNS infections include bacterial meningitis (BM) other than tuberculosis, viral encephalitis, tuberculous meningitis (TBM) and cryptococcal meningitis, but there are more than 100 documented infectious causes of CNS infections. More...

Eosinophil Count Provides Diagnostic Information for COVID-19

Early diagnosis of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and patient isolation are important for both individual patient care and disease containment. The diagnosis is confirmed by testing for the presence of nasopharyngeal viral RNA with a polymerase chain reaction assay, which has limited availability, variable turnaround time, and a high false-negative rate. More...

Endotheliopathy Assessed in COVID-19-Associated Coagulopathy

An important feature of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pathogenesis is COVID-19-associated coagulopathy, characterized by increased thrombotic and microvascular complications. COVID-19 infection coagulopathy is characterized by high D-dimer and fibrinogen concentrations with minor changes in prothrombin time and platelet count. More...

Methods Compared Classifying Intensity of Soil-Transmitted Helminth Infections

Soil-transmitted helminths (Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura) and the hookworms, Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale affect one quarter of the world population, and are responsible for the loss of more than three million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). More...

Type 2 Diabetes Associated with Arrhythmic Daily Gut Microbe

Type 2 diabetes (T2D), formerly known as adult-onset diabetes, is a form of diabetes that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin. Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss. More...

Automated Fluorescent Microbial Cell Counter Detects Urinary Tract Infection

Urinary tract infections (UTI) accounted for around 400,000 hospitalizations, resulting in an estimated cost burden of approximately USD 2.8 billion in the USA. Between 50% and 60% of adult women will have at least one UTI in their life, and close to 10% of postmenopausal women indicate that they had a UTI in the previous year. More...
